Reunion Island discovered by Russian wedding planners for honeymoons

Reunion Island discovered by Russian wedding planners for honeymoons ( Reunion Island is becoming a honeymoon destination for Russian wedding planners it seems, after two of the country’s leading professionals came to this French Indian Ocean island earlier in the week and met with Reunion Island Tourism (IRT), DMCs, and resorts as well as saw the wide range of unique attractions on offer.

Daria Bikbaeva and Julia Solovyeva have shared their opinion about Reunion Island as a honeymoon destination for their clients and answered questions posed by the IRT to them:

1. What type of wedding do you organize for your clients?

Daria: Usually Russian clients prefer visiting Europe for a wedding, because it’s close to Russia. Russian clients choose islands especially for honeymoons for fake or blessed ceremonies. There are three types of weddings: for a couple, for a group of ten, and for a group of about 30.

Julia: What is less common, is that sometimes we have groups coming from Russia or Greece that are going for a wedding destination; these groups can be up to 200 people.

2. Where have you already organized weddings around the world?

Both: Lots of weddings are organized in Italy, France, Greece, Spain, Montenegro, and Cyprus, so most likely within Europe. Most of people like beautiful gardens, castles, towers, and architectural tours for weddings. We also work in Thailand because of the direct flights from many Russian cities and no visa is required.

3. In your opinion, why is Reunion Island an ideal honeymoon destination?

Both: European people do not have access to such a mixture of it all - landscapes, ocean, mountains, valleys, and you find all of that in such a tiny and beautiful place. It is like paradise here! (laugh) Reunion Island has a unique atmosphere. It is not only about the landscapes or the beaches like in Mauritius. It is more than that. Here you can feel emotions you will not feel anywhere else!

4. What are the top 5 romantic activities to experience on Reunion Island?

1. Sunset cruise first of all!
2. Helicopter tour.
3. Dinner on the beach at sunset.
4. Waterfalls places and natural parks.
5. First look bride and groom in the Wild South (it’s a very dramatic place).

Julia: Picnics on Reunion Island seem like an entire small village brought together. This is not a touristic activity but it is traditional.

5. What would your ideal wedding on Reunion Island look like?

Daria: I am traveling constantly and have visited pretty much all countries in the world, but I must say that I have never seen such a beautiful place before! All these valleys, waterfalls, and mountains! A lot of people are looking for the ocean, the beaches, and it doesn’t really matter where you are, in Asia or in the Caribbean (showing a picture of a bridge on a white sand beach), they are all beautiful but it is all very common.

Reunion Island has its uniqueness, with all its lava flows, valleys, and everything surrounding us here! If it is possible to have a ceremony on Reunion Island it would make this moment unique, because no other countries would offer you such a unique surrounding and atmosphere. It would be all in the same picture. Here, the uniqueness of your place is in the inner Island.

Julia: The mixture of French culture and Creole culture allows us to have very interesting banquets maybe in some interesting places: on the beach, maybe in the mountains. This is our ideal wedding on Reunion Island! We’d like to be the first to organize a wedding on the lava flows!

6. Do you have a crush on Reunion Island?

Daria: Yesterday when I saw my photos it was like a lifelong slideshow. It was like a big life and did not seem like one day. Everywhere and everything is interesting!

Julia: From the morning to the sunset we had the opportunity to have so many different experiences and feelings that excited us. And all this in only 24 hours!

Both: Before coming to Mauritius island we have not heard yet about Reunion Island. It is an amazing surprise! See you soon on Reunion Island!

There you are - all the right reasons to come to Reunion Island for an action-packed honeymoon amid very stylish accommodation and accompanied by good Creole food and exotic activities.
